-- all revenue measures have to originate in the house. john boehner talked about the looming fiscal cliff, and like the president he also hinted at room for compromise. you have to listen carefully to see the compromise that could be coming. >> it's clear that there are a lot of special interest loopholes in the tax code, both corporate and personal. it's also clear that there are all kinds of deductions, some of which make sense. others don't. everything, everything on the revenue side and on the spending side has to be looked at. >> senator chuck schumer in new york this morning on msnbc suggested that the right wing might be more willing to accept compromise now. he's being hopeful. let's watch. >> boehner wants to compromise. that's why he gave that speech. you know, boehner is not a hard right guy. he's a mainstream conservative, and i think it's going to work because the hard right is chastened in a lot of ways. >> here is a republican who may not be quite in on what happens -- happening after the election, jeff duncan. when i look at the results of the election, congressman d

think john boehner is going to do a good job as speaker, and we're going to get stuff done, and it's going to be good for the country because i think boehner is thinking first about how do we make this country better, and i think it's going to be good for the country. >> i hope you're right. >> why don't you go work with him? together you could make things happen. john feehery, i hope you get a job with that guy. you and him would be great. bob shrum. thank you. >> great to see you. >> i always root for boehner to do the right thing. >>> dirty, angry money. or should we say wasted money? the dog that didn't bark this election. what did the sheldon adelsons get for their hundreds of millions of dollars in tv advertising? >>> here is a tweet from alec baldwin. it's been making the rounds -- you know your party is in trouble when people ask did the rape guy win and you have to ask which one. the notorious comments didn't merely embarrass republicans, exposed them. it shows too many of them think like they do. anyway, that will kill that will cost them the white house again and again and

from square one, apparently. john boehner today, he wants to not have any grand bargain before the end of the year. wants to do this -- they're just buying time. it will be interesting -- i'll be curious to see how the white house now reacts. you've got boehner and mcconnell, boehner is playing good cop, seems more conciliatory. mcconnell less so. mcconnell has a political squeeze happening on him because he's up for re-election in 2014. two things he's worried about. one is a primary challenge. two, ben chandler, great grandson of happy chandler, long time kentucky democratic name lost. suddenly doesn't have a house seat anymore. he might be looking for something to run for in 2014. >> how about ashley judd? >> well, i've heard the ashley judd rumor. i've also heard her running for governor of tennessee, which democrats are trying to get her to run for. i think ashley judd wants to run for office. that's a serious piece of speculation that's been circulating in kentucky. but -- so mcconnell has to play bad cop here. how is the white house going to respond, push back on this? clear

least for now rhetorically gave them room to work. >> john boehner is listening to the future, he's listening to his party -- >> reporter: they want a deal. >> they want a deal. do you think the republicans are listening to the brains out like this like kristol and other thinkers, do you think they're willing to say we've been to prejudice to the rich. this is one of the areas they will say you won the battle. we won't keep fighting for the rich. >> reporter: here's what i can tell you. when you talk to leadership and do reporting on that, they want a deal. they're ready for a deal. and they're not that far off. the problem is, can you find a minimum -- let's just say a minimum of 35 house republicans who can commit themselves to voting for a raise of tax rates. it would be and could be primary suicide for those 35 republicans. because we know these gerrymander districts. this is not about swing districts anymore. that's the problem boehner had. if boehner had 35 safe republicans, safe from a primary challenge, safe from somebody from the right on taxes, i think this deal would have

another term as chairman of that party up there. >>> next, john boehner was re-elected yesterday for a second term as speaker of the house, but georgia congressman louis gohmert, an original charter member of the birther crowd, had a different candidate in mind. who do you think he nominated? newt gingrich for speaker right now. you don't technically actually have to be a house member to be speaker of the house, but it's been the rule historically. by the way, boehner's word to gohmert after the vote, "louie, i love you too." >>> finally this one. after the election we heard certain ceos were threatening to fire employees if president obama won the election. some are going through with it. robert murray, ceo of the coal company that ordered employees to attend a rally with mitt romney, laid off 156 employees the day after the election. nice guy. john schneider, ceo of papa john's pizza chain, says he will be cutting employee hours to avoid costs associated with obama care. finally, john metz, ceo of several denny's franchises, says he will add a 5% surcharge to customers' bills to offs
